When you purchased your house you should have got a copy of all the paperwork from the notaire... this should have in it a copy of the cadestral plans (showing all the land you own). Also, I think, for a fee you can ask your notaire to arrange for a chap from the land registery who will come and mar...

Carrefour, Leclerc, Aldi etc all have gluten free foods available.... or did have just before christmas (as we had to buy some in for 'gluten free' guests).
You should not have a problem finding french food...
... do snails have much gluten in them?

I think there was a post on here a while back about an internet company that sells tyres and would deliver within France.
I cant find it for the life of me so wondered if anyone know the name of the website?
Thanks in advance

Hi tazjuliet If you have a largish load that need bringing over, it could be worth contacting one of your loacl main international removal companies. I know they can be expensive at first glance but we did similar and found that they often do trips to Europe that are not full loads or they may have ...

regarding the removal of seats, if you remove seats and then use the space for your load, you are technically changing the status the the vehicle from a passanger vehicle to a commercial/load moving vehicle. In the Uk this may be ok but in Belgium, Gernmany and I believe France, this is deemed as br...

... and what does Andy do? You could ask your Mairie etc but they will no doubt recommend a local guy - not always the best standard of work or value for money. (we have a tradesman near us and all the locals warned us to stay away from him, yet the Mairie recommended him) Ask on places like here (P...

Try you local axa or somewhere similar (in France) as nearly all insurance companies in France provide cover for holiday/second homes too. We were with Intasure to start with but when we looked at getting local quotes, we found that for better cover and also additional business insurance (public lia...

They wont be edible dormice as these are much larger than your average mouse. (have a look at their tails as this is normally a good way of telling exactly what they are) A cat would be your best bet as the smell of the cat would deter the little ones even if the cat does not actually catch them. If...

The chaps at: Les Fragnes Llamas
have some great fish although Im not sure if it would be fly fishing (as Im not a fisherman myself) so it might be worth giving them a shout.
You can contact them via their website which is mentioned on the Business spotlight article.

ref car insurance, I would recommend the following company: Asttral S.A The chaps name is: Nick Chubb (he speaks both english and French) email: firstname.lastname@example.org They are a broker and their prices for our Landrover where a lot less than any others. For example: Our neighbour owns a local Axa franc...

Just quickly going back to your power line units... did you purchase them in France or in the UK and also where from?
I have had a read on their website but I think they must be updating or something as I cant see to access most of their information.

Morning Thanks for all the advice. I have a few more quotes to come in but it still might be a do it yourself job. It seems quite straight forward... except for the heights. If you see a madmad dangling from a rope thats tied to a chimney stack near Domeyrot in the next few weeks, that could be me :...

Hi Twiggy Hope you are both ok. :D We are looking into getting liners for our chimneys at the mo so I will pass on any good info I find. Im also looking into attempting to fit the liners myself but Im still trawling the internet looking for 'do it yourself' lining advice - and I am still building up...

Hi it might be worth having a look on ebay (british ebay) as we bought ours from there and we got a good deal. There are always folk moving back to the UK from France and Spain etc and they want to sell asap to buy a righthand drive car. Ours was a French vehicle so it just cost us 120... ish euros ...

Hi ADevonmaid welcome to Pont Noir. We had similar a similar question before we moved to France and someone sent us this (it may help a little).... Living in France, working in the UK – can it be done? Increasing numbers of people are choosing to turn their backs on an overcrowded and expensive UK a...
